Course code ADFLCS6L2
Duration 1 Day

You already create Flash animations. You can find your way around the Library and can work in the timeline. You've created symbols and have embedded one Movie Clip inside another. Now you want to create functionality that can't be accomplished on the timeline alone. You want to import content from external sources, such as XML and video files, and you want to create items that respond to user interaction. These things require an understanding of ActionScript and other advanced features of Flash.

Target Audience:

This course is designed for delegates who want to expand their Flash skills beyond developing simple animations, to use extended capabilities of Flash, including ActionScript, importing external multimedia content (graphics, video, and audio), and publishing options to customise the presentation of a finished movie. This course, combined with Adobe Flash CS6 Level 1, covers ACA and ACE exam objectives for Adobe Flash CS6, and is intended to help prepare students to take the Adobe Certified Associate and Adobe Certified Expert exams.
